This visualization uses two chord diagrams. The diagram on the left emphasizes how much each country lends (creditors); you can see Japan and France are the biggest lenders, but France is also the most exposed by its risky debts to Italy and Greece. The diagram on the right emphasizes how much each country owes (debtors); the United States has by far the largest debt, nearly three times the size of the next-largest debtor, Britain!
